Sustainable Cities

Smart cities – Sustainable Urban Centres of the Future

Urban growth requires energy solutions and ÅF works closely with its clients to create sustainable cities.

With more people moving into big cities there has been a dramatic increase in the need for housing and innovative energy solutions, so ÅF has begun working with architects and urban planners to develop sustainable solutions for the cities of tomorrow.

Our experts want to work with you to optimise the energy performance of buildings. We also provide solutions that make use of solar energy and rainwater. Just to mention a few of the services we are able to deliver to help ensure the construction of environmentally sustainable homes.

In China, where around 17 million people a year are leaving the countryside for the cities, ÅF is currently involved in several close collaborations with town planners.

It is precisely this ambition to cooperate closely with you throughout the process that is our strenght, and an important part of this is listening and asking questions to understand the challenges. 

ÅF leads the field in the Nordic countries and we are currently working on international projects on all continents. When building for the future, we need to build sustainably. We need to build "smart cities."
